Lemonface – Jah Lion

Scratch aka Super Ape aka Jah Lion. Lee “Scratch” Perry has been bustin’ out Reggae and Dub tunes since the 1950s and is an absolute legend in his own right. The man was one of the first producers on the planet earth to use samples, and just with that alone he has contributed to this beautiful thing we call Hip Hop music today. His immense history (and corresponding catalogue) has inspired Super Nice Music beat maker Lemonface to dig into Scratch’s golden years, just to honor the man himself with a 90’s sounding beat tape, heavily infused by Lee “Scratch” Perry’s genius.

The result, “Jah Lion”, is something that sounds familiar and comforting, yet refreshing. It’s where 90s Hip Hop beats meet the amazing Dub and Reggae of Scratch’s riddims from the early 60s to the late 70s. We skipped the 80s, which you all should be thankful for. Jah Lion is Lemonface’s first solo outing, but the follow up to his critically acclaimed LP “Post Crisis: Life After 30” with Associated Minds rapper Ralph Rip Sh!t.
